Nice and Quiet

First off - you will need a higher clearance vehicle to reach this campground, and signage may be limited so make sure you know your step by step directions beforehand. The road is basically a forest service road with ruts and high bumps. Our group made it in a Nissan rouge and a Rav 4, but it was pushing it a bit.

Once you are there it's amazing! Way better than Jubilee lake! Jubilee lake is crowded and you camp right on top of your neighbors. Here there's lots of room between you and your neighboring campsite - if you even have neighbors, we were the only ones there.

It's super quiet, very shaded, a really ideal campground. If you are looking to hike, it's a good spot, with access to a few trails. There's a pit toilet, and a freshwater spring.

Great place for astrophotographers when conditions are right!
